Cantillons Solicitors are delighted to have learned that the Firm has been ranked by the Chambers & Partners researchers and investigators in respect of their independent ranking of the best lawyers throughout the world for 2016. Chambers & Partners identify the best law firms globally, whether they consist of one lawyer, or a thousand. They are aware that boutiques and smaller law firms contain some of the finest lawyers, and generate some of the best legal work in the market.
In concluding that Cantillons should be ranked in the acclaimed Guide, the Chambers researchers investigated feedback and reviews from clients, counsel and experts, to assess work done by the firm in the context of efficiency, technical ability, client service, professional conduct, value for money and diligence. Client interviews were given priority in terms of weight.
Speaking in response to the news of the ranking, Managing Partner, Ernest J. Cantillon stated the following:-
“A Chambers ranking is an independently verified testament to the excellence of service. It is an eminent “badge of honour” and one we have no control over, but through the work we do and the feedback independently given by our clients, experts and colleagues. Because the priority of the research is on client experience and feedback, the ranking gives us a firm assurance that we are delivering on our promises, by providing the very best in legal services to our clients, many of whom tragically find themselves in the most appalling of circumstances.
We are really humbled to hear from a truly independent source, that we are doing the best work conceivable for our clients, which is what we set out to do, each and every day, in each and every case.
Our mantra is not to follow precedents but rather to set them, and in being one of the first boutique law firms in Ireland and certainly the such firm outside Dublin to be ranked by Chambers, in some ways we are again setting the trend. Our Firm is very much based on the ethos of team work, and nothing would be possible without the dedication and tenacity of each and every person in our 40 strong staff, at our office in 38/39 South Mall, Cork. Large law firms are easy to find but Chambers & Partners recognise small firms that are providing a personalised, excellent service to clients and we are delighted with the news.”
